In this video, we’re going to talk about the ketogenic diet and dairy. I’m not going to talk specifically about lactose intolerance or milk allergies. I mainly want to cover if you should have dairy on a ketogenic diet or not.

Sugar in 8oz. (1 cup) of various kinds of yogurt:
• Fat-free fruit — 47g
• Fat-free plain — 19g
• Fat-free Greek — 9g
• Whole milk plain — 11g
• Fat-free vanilla — 34g
• Goat milk kefir — 7g
• Blueberry kefir — 20g
• Low-fat plain kefir — 12g
• Low-fat plain kefir (lactose-free) — 11g

*Yogurt is not a good idea to consume on keto.

Sugar in 8oz. (1 cup) of various kinds of milk:
• 2% milk — 12g
• Half and half — .36g
• Whole cream — .1g

*2% milk is not a good idea to consume on keto. Whole cream is the best to consume, but half and half is fine too. Try to get organic and grass-fed if possible.

Sugar in 8oz. (1 cup) of various kinds of cheese:
• Cream cheese — .45g
• Pepper jack — 0g
• Cheddar — 0g
• Mozzarella — 1.4g
• Processed cheese — 19g
• Cottage cheese — 6g

*Processed cheese is not a good idea to consume on keto. You would also want to avoid consuming cottage cheese. However, cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, cheddar, and mozzarella are fine to consume on a ketogenic diet. Try to get organic and grass-fed if possible.
